In January 2020, Camposol returned to the international capital markets with the successful placement of USD 350 million in senior unsecured notes. The proceeds of this issue were used to refinance all the outstanding long-term debt with commercial banks and to finance a portion of expansion CAPEX. “Our lately bond transaction marked our successful return to the international capital markets, with a book that was 6x times oversubscribed. The transaction improved our financial flexibility and levered our capacity to continue deploying our strategy, which is now much more relevant given the uncertainties that arose with the COVID-19 pandemic” stated Jorge Ramirez Rubio, CEO of Camposol.
